Some nice (and most importantly useful!) trickery with CSS and jQuery.
I have to say, my favorite is “Ben the Bodyguard”.
A nice tip, an oldie but a goldie.. mainly for this reason:
As much as we don’t like to deal with the IE bugs, we still have to face it because your boss and visitors are still using Explorer. It gets frustrating when different versions of Explorer displays web pages differently due to the inconsistent rendering engine.
Thankfully the newer versions of Internet Explorer don’t tend to be that much of a problem.
Not every HTML5 or CSS3 feature has widespread browser support, naturally. To compensate for this, enterprising developers have created a number of tools to let you use these technologies today, without leaving behind users who still live in the stone age.
Another post promoting HTML5 and CSS3 to everyone, and telling us why we should all be using it.
Sometimes it feels that we are hiding behind the lack of cross-browser compatibility to avoid learning new techniques that would actually dramatically improve our workflow. And that’s just wrong. Without an adjustment, we will continue to undersell the Web we have, and the landscape will remain unexcitingly stale and bound by this underestimation and mindset.
I couldn’t agree more.
